Default Re: Favorite OS?

The thing I hear all too often is how wonderful XP is when most saying that may have only run XP and not any previous versions when making comparisons. I'm not pointing at any one person but simply making a general observation here.

Having started off with ROM Basic before MS Dos even I've had a good chance to look over everything on the way upto now 7 in beta form. Vista saw bloat when replacing XP while being a far more stable version. 7 seems a bit more light weight but can still be bogged down.

Right now it looks right now like it dust both of the two previous versions right off with ease. The "proof is in the pudding" will be tested when the final editions are out.

Vista has so many security errors. I use boot camp on my mac and sometimes use XP for the games and stuff on there, but that is mostly my only reason to use XP. I gave up on vista

It used to, for that fact, so did XP. any new OS will.

Any ways, mine would have to be Windows 7.... even though it's still in beta. It is soo much faster than XP or Vista.

Any thing that ends with nix. Or anything that is open-source.

XP was oine loaded with errors. Why do you think SP3 sees over 1,000 fixes in that. I ran Vista in beta and then finished now set as default. Haven't tried Mac yet while Linux, OpenSolaris, ubuntu on the other drive(who said that?).

I think it's cool that their are other open-source OS'. But what about games? Do you have like XP emulators or something?

EDIT: For me it's XP btw.
